A quick, easy and fun way to get ‘the gist’ of what’s going on in the sports world.


Only ‘the gist’ of what you need to know, when you need to know it.

The GIST: By now you know that Toronto (and Canada) are on top of the basketball world after the Raptors beat the Golden State Warriors 114–110 in Game 6 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night. Relive the best of it here.
The party never ends: Most Raps players spent two days celebrating in Las Vegas with global ambassador Drake and are now back in Toronto for the championship parade (!!!) that starts at 10 a.m. ET today.

Women’s World Cup

Sign up to receive a pre-game GIST email before each of Canada’s games in the FIFA women’s World Cup! On top of getting your regular GIST newsletter on Monday’s and Thursday’s, you’ll receive a GIST email one hour before each of Canada’s games. What a time to be alive.

The GIST: The U.S. Open major golf tournament in Pebble Beach, California, wrapped up on Sunday night with American Gary Woodland shooting a 13 under par to win his first major title (and the $2.25M prize that comes with it). But what’s debatably more important is that Canadian Brooke Henderson made some golf history.
Tell me about Brooke!: The 21-year-old golfer won the Meijer Classic on Sunday, her ninth LPGA title, to become the winningest pro golfer in Canadian history. She now has more titles than any Canadian golfer, male or female. Did we mention she’s only 21? Mind-blowing.
